Vista SP1 disabled my DVD-drive
I have a Dell Inspiron 1501. I upgraded from XP Pro SP3 to Vista Business and just installed SP1 (thought it was suppose to be a good idea to install SP1).

Now, I cannot use the DVD-drive. I tried uninstalling/installing the drive, updating the driver, rebooting... nothing works. I can't eject either. Besides reverting to XP, what else can I do?

I had to replace the disk drive so maybe it was coincidence? But this may be related... I was using the Windows default Administrator login but when I switched to a regular login (as administrator), it solves a few other problems.

Re: Vista SP1 disabled my DVD-drive
Do you have I-tunes installed?

I have seen at least two cases where I-tunes alters filtersin the registry that make you optical drives inaccessible in Vista SP1.

In one case I called Dell and they walked me through the resetting of the filters which re-enabled the drives, but disabled I-tunes and when the user reinstalled I-tunes the drives again stopped working again.

The other case a user installed I-tunes and her optical drives stopped working and when she uninstalled I-tunes they began working again.
